MacGyver is at the beach checking coastal flight patterns of birds when Mr. Remick, the lawyer for a local company, arrives. He insists his company wants to preserve the beauty of the land while building a breakwater for a new marina. MacGyver isn't convinced, noting the Phoenix Foundation has found evidence to the contrary. Remick offers to pay MacGyver to come on with his company as a private consultant. MacGyver laughs at him and tells him he'll be going to the board for a three-week extension to get enough evidence do a full impact report. Remick warns him he'll find out how things really work and departs. As he goes down the road, he signals to a tow truck. As MacGyver drives by, the tow truck pulls out after him, closes in, and tries to run him off the road. MacGyver uses a fire extinguisher to blind the driver and escape...Read the full recap
Remick: I don't know what you think you're protecting. We don't want to see it changed either. The beauty of this land enhances the value of our own investment. I mean, do you think we're fools? We'd act against our own interests?
MacGyver: I think your company's first priority is to get your marina built.
Remick: Come on, MacGyver, there's other beaches for your birds.
MacGyver: Well, the fact is, we're running out of "other beaches."
Remick: This is a $2 billion project, MacGyver. The interest on that money alone could run well over $100 million a year, while you're busy delaying this thing. Which is something you'd know if you live in the real world.
MacGyver: I live in the real world, Remick. This one.
Pete: Thanks for wearing a shirt and tie. Looks great! Can't talk you into a haircut, can I?
Paint Instructor: So this is coming along very well.
MacGyver: Well, thanks. Goalies are easy models: they never move.
MacGyver: Maybe we could get together some time and compare notes over a cup of coffee.
Deborah: I don't drink coffee.
MacGyver: Neither do I.
